Though she admits to having had “down days” occasionally during her chemo treatment, Tina Griffin, Sales Associate at Russell Johns (http://russelljohns.com), is gearing up for the Suncoast “Race for the Cure” on Oct. 11, and she’s asking friends, family and co-workers to support her effort.

“I registered for the Komen Race for the Cure because I wanted to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer,” Griffin said.

Tina Griffin, a Senior Sales Associate at Russell Johns (http://russelljohns.com), is finishing up her chemotherapy but not her fight against cancer. Though weakened by the treatments, she has signed up for the Komen Florida Suncoast “Race for the Cure” on Saturday, Oct. 11, in Carillon Park, St. Petersburg.

“I registered for the Komen Race for the Cure because I wanted to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer,” Griffin said.

As part of her efforts, she is asking those who want to help consider making a tax-deductible donation to support her fund-raising run.

“You can donate online with your credit card by clicking the button above my fund-raising thermometer,” she said. The button is at the following link:


Griffin has lived in Florida most of her life, having moved to the Sunshine State when she was age 10. She has been married 30 years; her husband and one of her sons are Pinellas County deputies. She also has a son who is a deputy in Osceola County. In addition, her daughter-in-law is in law enforcement.

Family and friends have stepped up to help Griffin in her quest to fight cancer, as have her co-workers at Russell Johns Associates, one of the country's leading publisher's representative for recruitment and direct response advertising, both in print and online.

Earlier this year, MCA (http://www.myclassifiedads.net) took over Russell Johns, whose client list included USA Today, American Family Physician and the National Enquirer.

RJA’s CEO Blaire Fanning is co-founder of MCA, a full-service agency that itself is part of an awarding-winning, decades-old media group made up of My Classified Ads, Print & Radio, Media Mix Power and Blaire.co.

Fanning believes what Dale Carnegie once observed: “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”

For that reason, MCA-RJA supports pro-active employees like Griffin who are trying to make a positive impact on the community with participation in events like the Race for the Cure.
